Dog Story: Meet Mr Briggs, a rich liver and white handsome Brittany boy. Briggs is a very special boy with a personality that words cannot do justice to describe.but will try! He loves to cuddle, if he needs to go out, he will jump on your lap, put his paws on the side of your head and melt into you. That is his way of saying.I need to go. Other times he will just melt into your arms and fall asleep. Yes, he is the true definition of a Brittany who wants to snuggle. Briggs will follow you wherever you go. If you are sitting on the couch or recliner, he will be right there next to you. Briggs is an excellent listener and is kennel trained. Briggs also loves his walks and does well on the leash. Briggs is NOT aggressive and is a bit timid around new dogs but warms up quickly. You never have to raise your voice with Briggs either. What you don’t know about Briggs is that he was born with a shunt. Life didn’t look very promising and he was starting to show the effects of having the shunt. But thanks to the wonderful veterinarians at the University of MN, they were able to do the surgery necessary to give him a good chance at a happy forever after. Briggs has now been released from the program. His levels aren’t quite where the vets would like them to be after the surgery, but he is doing so well (and so much better) that for now, he will stay on dog food designed for those with liver issues and will need to be monitored with blood work every 6 months to assure he continues to do well. If you would like adopt Briggs, please fill out the adoption application and mention his name and ID#. Briggs is up to date on his vaccines and heartworm negative and on preventative. Briggs was purchased as a puppy, but the owners found out as he grew that he was sick and they didn’t have the funds to get the surgery he needed so he was surrendered to rescue.
